    Neighbor Bob! Correct grammar would be “she and the magician are having an affair”.

    She might be coming to the conclusion that it would have been better to have had her back up against the opposite wall, where she could have pushed her head and torso out of the heptagonal (I counted 7 sides) opening first. Oh well, hindsight won’t be all that helpful here.

    When I saw him for the first time (I’m not a long-time reader) I noticed that the Clockwork Frenhman’s body is that of Tik-Tok, from L. Frank Baum’s Oz book series.

    The punchline infers that if he doesn’t stop comparing her to stretchy jeans, he won’t live long enough to wear all 10 pairs.

    The body is that of Tik-Tok, IIRC the wind-up mechanical man introduced in L. Frank Baum’s Ozma of Oz.

    I still keep checking back from time to time. I do hope Kory finds the time to continue the story at some point.

    There is film of McCay drawing Flip, the Imp, and Nemo for an animation in 1911, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcSp2ej2S00) at about 0:55, and it looks to me that he went straight to crow quill dip pen without underlying pencil sketches. Hard to know for sure, though.

    You’re right. Well, you know how it is when absent-mindedly writing the wrong date after the change of a year; it must have affected cartoonists, too.

    Since it’s Nemo’s dream-land, perhaps McCay intended the Princess to be a female extension of Nemo’s psyche. They do look a lot alike.

    Obviously you came back to read this after having read The Bogey.
